What I take from this is that if bounties are offered at all, they
should be small. I don't mean that the dollar amounts should be small,
but that the goal to be met for the bounty should be small. Anything
that would take more than a week of part time (say a total of 10 hours)
of work and need to be represented by multiple milestones needs to
somehow be broken up into seperate milestones, hopefully ones that can
be tackled by more than one person (although not necesarily
I should of course note for completeness that I am not in favor of
bounties being offered by SqueakFoundation. I have no problem with
offers from 'unofficial' individuals.
